Annual Fundraiser Visions Gala at the Empress Hotel in support of the VHF
For the past 16 years I have donated a significant work of art to the VHF Gala Auction which is their largest annual fund-raising event. As of April 2021 the total funds raised by my artwork exceeds $36,000. I am designated as a “Companion” on donor plaques displayed at Victoria’s two major hospitals. I am very proud to be recognized by this important organization that provides vital medical equipment and support to our community.

The fund-raising committee of BC Cancer Foundation (Victoria) hosts an Annual Fundraiser known as Jingle Mingle held at the Empress Hotel in December each year. I have donated a large painting to this auction fundraiser for the past 6 years.
